In General

The Engineering Bay houses the engineering team, headed by Dr. Shen.

Build/Buy Items

Here you can build or purchase items that you have the resources for.

Item Production and Foundry Project Speed

Each engineer increases the item production and foundry project speed through a complex formula (this is a rough approximation):

Time = Base Time * 0.5 * [1 + (Optimal Engineers / Actual Engineers) ^ (0.06 * Optimal Engineers)] / (1 + 0.6 * Number of Workshops) 

As long as the the number of available engineers is much lower than the recommended value, recruiting an additional engineer will significantly reduce the completion time. As the number of engineers approaches or exceeds the recommended number, then adding additional engineers has diminishing returns, i.e. each new engineer reduces time by a smaller and smaller amount.

Note that Base Time to build each item in hours is it's build time * the number of engineers required * 72.

Item Fabrication Capacity

The Engineering Bay grants an item fabrication capacity of 2. This means you can produce a maximum of 2 different item orders simultaneously. All other item orders will be queued to start once they finish. The item fabrication capacity is increased by 1 for every workshop.

Rushing

Rushing the production of an item reduces the base build time by 80%. The cost is 40% more resources and 5 meld.

Due to number of engineers affecting actual build times, when rush building, the final build time will likely not decrease by a full 80% (Click here for more info: Scientists and Engineers)

Build Facilities

By selecting "Build Facilities," a listing of the new facilities available for construction will be provided, along with the associated resource costs and time required for construction. There is no limit on the amount of excavation or construction that can be done at once.

Excavations cannot be rushed, and take 8 days to complete.

Rushing

Rushing the production of a facility reduces the base build time by 80%. The cost is 40% more resources and 10 meld.

Repair Bay

Items can be damaged when a unit is wounded during a battle.

They require 20% of their original build time and 10% of their original build cost to repair. Repairing does not affect item fabrication capacity.

Augment Soldiers

Augment up to 1 soldier at a time to become a MEC. For more information click here: MEC Augmentation
